The Importance Of A Good Bra With UK Lingerie

With all my fashion posts that I've had up recently from the British Style Collective, it got me thinking about the importance of having a good supportive bra and the influence my underwear has on my confidence and how I felt in the outfits over the weekend.

I don't think I've ever discussed it on my blog but unfortunately, I've been could you say "blessed" with F cup boobs. I say unfortunately as anyone that is big busted knows the downside of having a bigger bust and how important it is to have a good supportive bra and as the cups get bigger, the less pretty the bras get! Up to 80% of women are actually wearing the wrong size bra without realising it, whilst it can cause seemingly harmless issues like making your clothes not fit right, it can actually affect your health causing migraines and back pain. I was always taught that you should get your band size spot on as your band is what supports your bust (not the straps!) and to get remeasured in each store you buy as you can differ in size from store to store.

Whilst wearing an ill-fitted bra can cause you to have health problems, it can actually impact your outfit (like I found on the last day of British Style Collective!). If your bra doesn't sit right, it can leave your bust looking bulky, it can even affect your posture. In terms of working out, an ill-fitted sports bra will cause me actual physical pain and be incredibly distracting! As you can imagine, searching for bras takes me such a long amount of time and money to find the perfect fitting bra.

Thankfully UK Lingerie heard my plight and have come to my rescue! Whilst they sell lingerie, they also sell nightwear, loungewear, shapewear and bodywear. With bras from an A cup to a J cup, there is something for everyone. The website is super easy to use and everything is so organised which means you don't have to go searching and searching for exactly what you want. In each section, you can break down your search to style, dress size, back size, cup size, price, colour and brand, meaning you can find the perfect bra for you. My order arrived within a few days of being shipped and came beautifully wrapped up, I was actually surprised that you could get two bras in such a small box!

I got the chance to try out one of their sports bras and their regular lingerie style bras. Both bras are by the brand PrimaDonna, which I've never tried before and I am officially obsessed. The sports bra is the perfect fit with a stunning grey colour with yellow accents, it's even a multi-way style sports bra so you can alter the straps at the back depending on what top you are wearing to the gym. For me, it comes up and over my bust (unlike some sports bras which seem to put your boobs on display!), so I felt that it kept everything in place and I wasn't got to come back from working out with black eyes! I also got the Deauville bra which is the perfect feminine bra for every day, with a full cup that has a lace accent on the top half. It comes in so many different colours, I decided to go for a traditional black colour. My biggest bug bear with bras as a bigger busted lady is after wearing it for long periods of time the underwire tends to drive me insane. The Deauville bra is THE COMFIEST bra I have ever had and I want one in every single colour!

Speak to you next time!
